José Mourinho is living a true idyll with AS Roma. Since his arrival on the Roman bench, the Portuguese coach has won all his matches (6 in total). His team were in a show of force last night against CSKA Sofia 5-1 in the Europa League Conference. As often, Mourinho builds a real relationship with his players, and this is still the case with the Giallorossi squad. Upon his arrival, The Special One appointed Lorenzo Pellegrini captain. Since then, the midfielder has been walking on the water with five goals and two assists in six matches. The 25-year-old wanted to thank his coach for the new impetus given to the team: “I thank Mourinho very much for the trust. You have to keep growing because this year there is something special in Trigoria. It’s the right way if we want to win something“.
Mourinho congratulated by Totti
Mourinho puts everyone in agreement in Rome, but we still have to go through the judgment of the one who best represents Roma: Francesco Totti. The legendary number 10 was pleasantly surprised by the manager’s debut. He recently shared his opinion in an interview with the Gazzetta dello Sport : “Mourinho is a safe bet both on the pitch and in the management of the group. He surprised me in his ability to put himself in front of everyone, he acts like a lightning rod, an ability that can be decisive in a city like Rome“.
Hakimi and Mbappé at Real Madrid?
Arrived this summer at Paris Saint-Germain, Achraf Hakimi would not count on spending too long in the French capital. Antonio Conte, his former coach at Inter, assured the channel Sky Sports that the dream of the Moroccan would be to return to play at Real Madrid. As a reminder, Hakimi is under contract until 2026 with PSG. But after the agitated summer between the Casa Blanca and the Ile-de-France residents for Kylian Mbappé, not sure that this wish will be realized immediately. Moreover, one of their Parisian teammate was sure that the French striker was not going to leave PSG. Ander Herrerra spoke about Mbappé’s particular transfer window: “What the club had always told us is that Mbappé stayed. I asked him two weeks before the market closed and he replied: “I am here, I am here”. Everything he saw in the press didn’t match what was going on here. What happens this season may have an impact on Mbappé’s decision to stay or not ”.
